Countdown to Kindergarten

Friday, Aug. 4th



Join us for Countdown to Kindergarten!

It’s time to get ready for the upcoming school year! Countdown to Kindergarten returns on Friday, August 4th at TCMU-Spartanburg.

This FREE community event will provide families with rising 3K, 4K and Kindergarteners with the opportunity to connect with community partners focused on student success and childhood development. While the event is free, we do ask you to please RSVP so we can plan accordingly. 

Plus, TCMU-Spartanburg will host a variety of activities–from learning how to use a lunch tray to mock classrooms–geared at preparing young learners for their first school experience!   

This event will take place on Magnolia Street in front of the museum. All event vendors will be a part of the Upstate community and have a primary focus on student success, childhood development, and school readiness. 

Our Community Partner, South Carolina Autism Society, will be providing a free “chill out zone” for kids with sensory needs who need a break during the event. 

Thank you to our event sponsors!
